The food was great, so I should give this a 5 star review. It’s one of our go-to spots. Waitress/hostess Nan, is cold, emotionless, rude, and curt. She needs a lesson in compassion and customer service. We seem to ALWAYS get put in her section....More

I imagine the only reason this place is rated so high is because it is in a small town w/ limited dining options. But given its proximity to both Madison and Milwaukee, good foodie towns, I expected a lot more. Very, very average Italian food....More
